It is important to involve family doctors and pediatricians in this struggle. In this regard, is necessary to introduce the topic “Primary and secondary prevention of cervical cancer – the path to the elimination of illness” in the curricula and programs of medical faculties of higher educational institutions of III–IV accreditation levels and postgraduate education.
